Skillz HR Generalist Speaks at Greenhouse’s Open Series

Our Human Resources Generalist, J.R. Guzmán, recently spoke about change management and how to promote behavioral change in your organization at a Greenhouse Open Series event. Greenhouse is an applicant tracking system (ATS) that companies use to recruit candidates, and its Open Series brings industry leaders together monthly to explore the evolving world of work. Having used the Greenhouse system at both Skillz and previous jobs, J.R. shared his firsthand knowledge with both new and tenured Greenhouse customers attending the event.


During a one-hour session, J.R. spoke alongside Mike Ron, a Customer Success Manager at Greenhouse. Together they explained how to employ a change management mindset and provided specific examples of promoting change through the utilization of Greenhouse. Attendees were also encouraged to engage in hands-on activities to assess and develop a change plan in order to actively manage an ongoing change project. J.R. enjoyed collaborating with Mike, since their personalities and speaking styles complemented each other well.


Reflecting on the event as a whole, J.R. says: “My goal was to provide attendees with tangible action items, and I think each person left the event knowing a lot more about how to promote behavioral change.” Walking away from the event, he’s looking forward to continuing his HR advocacy across the larger tech industry to make a positive impact and help as many people as possible.
